My new roaster - Phantom
« on: 05/05/2018, 08:50 AM »
Hey guys. I recently purchased a new roaster for my slowly growing business based near Ballarat in country Vic. I’ve had some teething problems mostly caused by my lack of knowledge and the lack of knowledge of my local gas fitters! I finally got onto a good one on my third attempt and am now slowly up and running (more like a brisk walk!!)

Not sure it’s sustaining itself at present, just allowing for bigger toys (don’t tell my wife!!)

At the moment with 125mm heatproof flex pipe Brett for trial only but next week (or the week after) it will be flued properly up through the roof. And commissioned by a suitably qualified gas fitter.

The shed it’s in has fully insulated walls and roof and is 6x4 Metres purpose built for roasting in (wish it was three times the size!)

It has aircon to control the temp and a couple of exhaust fans for safety sake too.

Looks like a great setup to meet your needs. I’ve got roast envy now.

I love it how coffee tricks me into thinking I'm in a good mood for exactly 27 minutes.

Luke do you mind me asking where you bought this? CRA? Talk Coffee?
I love coffee. It's as simple as that.

Direct from CRA as it was their demo machine. I think if your in vic talk coffee is the go to though  he is their agent. Chris has been super helpful with some minor issues I’ve had especially good considering I didn’t buy through him.

Ok thanks for that. We are in NZ and are looking for some options for a new roaster. It’s slim pickings over here so it may be worth talking to CRA or another Australian supplier. Probably looking in the 15-20kg range.

I believe they have just released a 15kg and also do a 22kg.

In saying that if you wanted a 10 (second hand) Chris is selling his has garanti. I’ve used it a fair bit and it’s great!
